Top Bird message for June
Notes for the GFWC Fabulous Florida Flamingo Flock Cyber Club
Good Morning to my flock…how you all doing today??? Staying dry I hope…my feathers are soaked these days, but I keep on Living the Volunteer Spirit!
If you are going to the GFWC convention the end of next week, I am planning a gathering of our flock! I don’t know where in the hotel, so please see me under the Florida sign and I will have little notes telling you when and where we will be meeting. Please include in your packing something pink or something with a flamingo on it to wear when we meet… it will make a great picture. I’ll be the one with the flamingo hat. I am bringing our new brochure so that we can encourage others to join our flock across the country. My goal is to see this Cyber Club flourish. I will also be selling a flamingo bracelet for $10.00 each…and may I say it is beautiful!
Here is something new, FUN and easy for my Flock….
If you are on face book you read about being a ‘’FLOCKER ROCKER.” I think it is a great membership tool as well as being a fun project. Please include the name GFWC Fabulous Florida Flamingo Flock Cyber Club and maybe our email address.
Thousands of people across the country have joined in the fun. In the Tampa Bay area alone there are dozens of Facebook groups: Tampa Rocks, Brandon, Tarpon Springs, St Pete, Plant City, etc… Throughout Florida, there are groups from Pensacola to Jacksonville to Key West and everywhere in between. Just put your city and Rocks and there’s probably already a group. Supposedly the first groups were started in Vancouver, Washington and Forest Grove, Oregon. And it spread like wildfire!
There’s not much required…all you need are rocks, paint and the great outdoors. No artistic talent is really required...you can write a message or word (LOVE) or draw a peace sign. Just have fun!
WHAT TO DO: You get some rocks that are small enough to carry and decorate one side…use paint, markers, stickers…whatever you like. On the other side, write the name of the Facebook group you belong to, such as Tampa Rocks. Take a picture of your rocks and post the pictures, then go out and hide them in a public place for someone to find. When you post the picture of your masterpiece, you can write a hint such as “headed to Lowry Park Zoo”. The finder then takes a photo of your rock and posts it on the page listed on the back. They can then keep the rock or hide it for someone else to find.
In addition to the “rock” page you join, keep GFWC Fabulous Florida Flamingo Flock updated on rocks you’re hiding and rocks you find! For those going to GFWC Convention, here’s your chance!
That’s all I have for now…See you in California and watch for our pictures on face book.
Have a wonderful day!
